Auction Prices No Weaker in June

Sat, 06 Jun 2009
Supply shortage v/s demand and continued used car exports due to the weakness of Sterling is still keeping prices up. Together, of course, with some naughty running up of private bidders by traders.

An 06 Megane CC had looked good value at an opening bid of £4,500 and still sensible at £5,200, at which point the Internet bidders dropped out. Then it ran and ran all the way to £7,500 that might still have seemed value to the private buyer but was way past any bona fide trade bid.

Other cars just did it by themselves. A steel wheeled 2005/55 R50 MINI diesel with a rev counter and a/c and 31,000 miles made it all the way to £7,600, retaining its place as Britain’s lowest depreciator.

Audis were making jaw-dropping money.

SAABs, though, looked better value, particularly SAAB convertibles. There were some cheap Zafiras.

Citroen Xsara Picassos bid consistently in different sections in different halls, looking very good value 3 year old family cars.

The thing is, you can still do better at auction than you can at a dealer because you’ll be buying your car where the dealers buy theirs.

Just don’t get over excited. And don’t allow yourself to be run up.

Here’s the list. As usual, ‘s’ means sold. ‘p’ means top provisional bid, ‘pc’ means provisional, but close. ‘n/s’ means not sold. ‘n/w’ means miles not warranted. ‘MNW’ means unknown mileage. ‘dmg’ means damaged. D/R means damaged and repaired. ‘fl’ means facelift. Extras like ‘lthr’ and ‘sat’ are specified when they are not standard.
